Since I’ve been on a kick with watercolors lately, I thought it would be a good idea to give ALL of the brands I could find a fair shake. So today I’m reviewing Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Jar Sets.
Disclosure: I purchased these with my own funds. My opinions are based on my first-hand experience with the product. Some links below may be affiliate links and CTD will receive a small commission from your purchases.
From the website:
Our Magicals are just that, magical! These powdered dye based pigments are unlike any ‘pigment’ powder that you’ve ever seen as ours are dye based and “stain” rather than float within mediums. These powders are incredibly potent, so it just takes a tiny amount to colorize any number of things.
There are endless possibilities with our Magicals and here are just a few of the options to use them. Just wet a paintbrush with water or alcohol and “watercolor” away. Our Magicals contain a binding agent, are lightfast and “dye” as they move over porous surfaces. Again, a little goes a long way! Add a bit of the pigment to your favorite medium: acrylic glaze, clear gesso, modeling paste, gel, and fluid mediums, to colorize that medium.
Pigmented dye powders with a “KICK”! Magicals are sold in sets of 5 colors that “match” our spray sets, so those that match our Starburst line have that glorious shimmer you love, where the flats match our Flat Fabios and are just the scrumptious, vibrant color! Add a little powder for softer versions of the color and a lot for deep vibrant tinting.
The first thing to note is that these powders come in two varieties; the regular “Magical” jars are a shimmery, pearly finish- the “Flat” are just that- just plain color without any shimmer. I used Carribbean FLAT and Drink Me Silly (shimmer) and Industrial Chic (shimmer.)
It’s almost impossible to determine which is flat and which is shimmer just from looking at it- so make sure you keep the lids close by. There is no labeling on the jars themselves. Also, like the other watercolor powders I’ve reviewed, you can’t always tell the color of the paint by the color in the pot, either.
Of course, the real proof is in the pudding…er, the paper! So here’s a review video to show you how they are in action.
Let’s take another look at those samples, shall we?
And I know you will have questions, so don’t worry- I’m working on a comparison of all three powdered paints so you can see the difference & make the best buying decision for YOU.
I love your comments! Leave questions and feedback for me, so I can keep making quality reviews! Thanks!
